Toshi Yoshida (1911-1995) was one of the most successful Japanese woodblock artists of the 20th century. A member of the famous Yoshida family, he was the father of Tsukasa Yoshida and son of Fujio and Hiroshi Yoshida. He started drawing as a child and could learn painting and woodblock printmaking from his parents. His sheer talent was already visible in his early works and, supported by the knowledge of his father, he already managed to deliver remarkable woodblock prints from a young age.

Throughout his life he experimented with different art forms and produced many works. These include abstract designs, children’s books, paintings and many woodblock prints. Themes are varied and encompass nature, landscapes, temples and daily life, as well as his specialty of animal prints.
